The End of Early Music. A Period Performer's History of Music for the Twenty-First Century by Bruce Haynes

Book description
The End of Early Music is a must-read for anyone interested in the early music movement. Haynes goes on to urge all performers of rhetorical music to engage in more improvisation and personalization in their performances. Haynes provides an invaluable service by framing the issue of performance style in clearly defined terms that set the parameters for the broader discussion that must occur if classical music is to maintain, or as some would say, regain its stature as a relevant artistic force.... While The End of Early Music is subtitles A Period Performer's History of Music for the Twenty-First Century, it should be read by any and al intereste in our musical past, present, or future. From one of the brightest lights in the field of baroque music comes yet another indispensable book. Only Haynes, a performer of great sensitivity and dedication to the 'project' of historical performance, only Haynes, a scholar of alacrity and dynamism, only Haynes, who for over thirty years has never stopped interrogating what we are doing when we approach the past in performance, only Haynes could have written a brilliant book for early music in the new millennium.
